CHAPTER 290 - STATE OF DELAWARE EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT PROCLAMATION

WHEREAS, the home is of supreme importance as the basis of our community life, constituting, as it does, an essential factor in the health and happiness of both present and future generations; and

WHEREAS, local Better Housing Programs in all parts of our State are helping citizens to build new homes and to modernize homes which they now own--thus putting men back to work, and contributing in a positive way to industrial and business recovery.

NOW, THEREFORE, I, C. D. Buck, Governor of the State of Delaware, do set aside and appoint Saturday, the fifteenth day of June, 1935, to be known as

DELAWARE BETTER HOUSING DAY

and I call upon all our citizens to join with the citizens of other States throughout the Nation in marking the day with appropriate observances, in order that the benefits of the Better Housing Program may be brought to a still greater number of our people.

IN TESTIMONY WHEREOF, I, C. D. Buck, have hereunto set my hand and caused the Great Seal of the State of Delaware to be hereunto affixed this twelfth day of June, in the year of our Lord One Thousand Nine Hundred and Thirty-five.

(Great Seal)

By the Governor:

C. D. BUCK.

W. D. SMITH, Secretary of State.
